. this is "the five." did the obama administration deny the consulate in libya for more protection before last month's deadly attack? that is what a house committee alleges and they want answers. leaders of the oversight and government reform committee sent letter to hillary clinton asking why the request for security were denied by washington. they site multiple government officials as the sources. it has threats on facebook that targeted ambassadorsteins. andrea, we are three weeks to the day from the four ambassadors were killed. you have a committee now saying the answers are not good enough. they don't make sense. secretary of state hillary clinton says she will cooperate with congress. the right thing to do. there will be a hearing next wednesday. interesting today when we were talking last night and today, you saw that the press is not letting up on this. in particular, the editorial boards are starting to say wait a second, something does not seem right here. >> andrea: i don't think they could ignore it any longer. it's a shame it has take then long. but the evidence has just been ove
: in a move that is beneath the dignity of the oval office, it appears that the obama administration changed the monthly jobs report for political gain. after he was crushed at the denver debate, the labor department announced that the unemployment rate dropped magically to 7.8% in september. and the job registered more than 800,000. that's one of the biggest one-month jumps in 29 years. let me say this one more time. the biggest jump since 1983, convenient, considering that barack obama finds himself in the midst of perhaps the worst political week of his life. while the president claims that the unexpected news is a sign that america is, quote, moving forward, there are a growing number of skeptics that are crying foul. chief is the former g.e. ceo jack welch. unbelievable job numbers. they can't debate so they change the numbers. he appeared earlier today on "your world." >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother and
of the obama administration, what the president of the company said. i think they've been specific on the types of things that they would do to be able to increase jobs, provide more access to the american dream, and tough decisions have to be made. i cut spending in virginia about $6 billion eliminating deficits. republican governors have done it all over the country. sure there was some complaining and hardship at the beginning but we're running surpluses and the job rates in red states are better than blue states and that's what mitt romney will do. >> he's been specific about his goals. he hasn't been specific about how to reach those goals. what about what paul ryan acknowledged on fox -- >> andrea, hold on. >> go ahead. >> i have to stop you on that. the president of the united states, has not got a budget passed in three and a half years. that's -- you know, governors balance budgets every year on time. this president has not got a budget passed either house, even though he's had a majority. the president has had no plan to reduce the debt. he's increased the deficit a trillion dollars a

that they are in the car with us. >> reporter: the obama administration tells contractors they don't need to send out layoff notices days before the election, and if they get sued for ignoring the law the government will pay their expenses and lockheed martin says it will honor the request and hold off telling its worker but in a letter republican senators graham and john mccain warn 15 major defense contractors, writing, quote, it is our fear, should you rely on the guidance and fail to comply with the warren act requirements, you will be setting your company up for serious legal and financial repercussions, and, graham calls the situation disturbing. >> not only did it cut the warn act, it says a president, a president of the united states -- a precedent the executive branch of government, through the president's actions, can set aside existing statutes. >> reporter: administration officials insist their guidance is legal. and, consistent with all federal contracting laws, and, regulations. rick? >> rick: mike emanuel in washington, thanks. >> arthel: "fox news alert" alert on the deadly meningitis
on the obama administration's watch and failed this to call them as such or delayed in their branding them as such and in fort hood i've done an extensive investigation, how can the defense department brand that or dealing with it as work place violence. it's just dishonest if i could take my reporters hat off. >> mike: i don't know how you could have your reports hat on and not state the obvious. what some of us are satisfying. and obvious to everyone. quickly, i want-- don't want to run out of time, but i have to ask you about new information on some of the security flaws that were apparently in the consulate in benghazi. you've uncovered some of those security flaws, tell us what those were. >> thank you, i spoke yesterday with someone who was called a regional security officers, the person in charge of the security in that country, and the state department personnel and someone who worked extensive will in the middle east. says catherine look at the pictures of the consulate in benghazi, a location classified as high risk of a terrorist attack or high risk of civil unrest, from that cl
attal islamic militants. is it your sense that the obama administration was owe live just to the known danger or they simply ignored it? >> you know, i don't know. i think we'll find out but it is clear that they missed the growing threats and they purposefully downplayed these threats. i think that's the trouble. gregg: sources have now confirmed to fox news that intel officials knew within 24 hours that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: wh
into that attack. you make a good point. we've had three terrorist attacks on the obama administration's watch yet they have failed to call them as such or delayed in their branding as such. fort hood where i've done an extensive investigation, how can they brand that as workplace violence. it's just dishonest to if i could take my reporter's hat on for a moment. >> that what some of us was saying. this is so obvious to someone. very quickly because i don't want run out of time but i have to ask about new information on some of the security flaws that parental were at the consulate in benghazi. you uncovered some of those security flaws. tell us what they were. >> i spoke yesterday who used to be regional security officer for the state department. this is a person who was s in charge of the security in that country for the state department personnel. this is someone who worked extensively in the middle east. he says you need to go back and look at those pictures as a consulate in benghazi. that would have been a location as a high risk of terrorist attack or high risk of civil unrest. from that cl
the obama administration. what do you make of this, chris? >> well, you're exactly right. obama had a bad first debate and you don't want to have two bad debates in a row. i don't think that biden will. you know, it's interesting, i interviewed paul ryan last week and talked to him about, about biden and i said what do you think of biden? you've been studying him obviously and prepping for him. he said, look, he's a very experienced guy and been in this for 40 years and you're not going to throw him off his game. and i said, yeah, how about the gaffes? he says he makes those in exte extempraneous on the stump and i don't think that he was spinning me, a strong determined biden. what's fascinating is the contrast between these guys, an old school liberal in the case of biden and a young gun conservative in the case of paul ryan and i mean, these guys couldn't be further apart in their outlook on the government and what they think are the solutions for the country over the next four years. >> and the way they speak, too, right, guys? and paul ryan we talking to huckabee, does paul ryan run
that the obama administration tried to keep secret regarding operation "fast and furious." it includes just who has paid the price with the now infamous gun tracking program. >> a mother cries for her son, one of 18 killed in drug rehab center in juarez, mexico. months later, hit men massacre 16 at teenager's birthday party. weapons used in both attacks traced to operation fast and furious. >> they are waiting for an answer. they want to know what happened. and why they define stop these guns from leighing the united states and enending up. >> spanish language network univision and fox news obtained list of 100,000 weapons recovered in mexico. compared those serial numbers with the 2000 guns sold in fast and furious. nearly two dozen matched. connecting an untold number of injuries and fatalities to the u.s. program. >> this woman lost two sons to fast and furious guns. >> they don't know what to do. we interview them and they say who is going to pay for this? >> it could be the u.s. government. should the family of border agent brian terry prevail in their wrongful death claim. >> the the peop
come to the fore in the light of the reaction of u.s. catholic bishops to the obama administration rules in the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the elephant in the room -- a lot of the catholics disagree with church teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] >> in this case, that institution still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and that they have their freedoms also. their religious freedom and in addition, these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so you have here attention of these -- a tension of these two conflicting rights going on here. rule proposed by the obama administration says these church institutions had to provide comprehensive health care for their employees. many catholics and many as opponents -- and many proponents of religious liberty oppose the obama that is rationed. but to its great credit, the obama and a trace of proposed a compromise, that such employees would be covered for contraception, but the instituti
. they are being buried by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing, they are being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> the romney campaign is taking remarks out of context. alex, will it work or is it just desperation? >> i think it's a real mistake whenever the romney campaign tries to play on the same field as the president and joe biden. nobody is a better surrogate, speaks more to the pain of the working and middle class than joe biden. don't even go there, paul ryan. that straight to camera shot, you saw both campaigns come out with ads. president obama is a much better speaker. he's more direct and communicates warmth and honesty. from mitt romney it seems hollow. if i were the romney campaign, i would stay with the fix it thing. do everything short of coming out with mops and brooms and talk about the economy. whenever they try to play the genuine american attack, it never works for them. they fall flat and it always rings hollow. >> alex, richard, great to have you with us on "the ed show." >>> coming up, the obama campaign released a new ad hammering mitt romney for ou
as suggesting the obama administration manipulated the report. he tweeted, unbelievable jobs numbers. the chicago guys will do anything, can't debate, so change numbers. the white house calls well sp's insinuation utter nonsense. and most republicans are steering clear of the former ceo's comments, including mitt romney. the republican nominee says many of the new jobs are only part-time. and that's not what a real recovery looks like. >> even those that have jobs are having tough times. the middle class is being squeezed with higher and higher costs and with incomes that have come down. >> report was good news on wall street, but investors remain weary. >> everyone is saying here we gorks everything
obama. the fact is this administration has a terrible record on foreign policy. you now have hillary clinton trying to rush extra money to egypt when i would frankly suspend all aid to egypt. >> sean: $450 million more. >> it's inconceivable. a house committee chairman has put a hold on the money. that's the right thing to do. there's no reason to send the head of the muslim brotherhood another penny. the president in egypt the head of a radical organization dedicated to pushing the united states out of the middle east. >> sean: the first presidential debate is on wednesday. the administration has been spending most of their weekend trying to lower expectations for the great orator obama, even the president saying, well, romney's good, i'm just okay. does that work if you're a sitting president? >> look, incumbent presidents who lose debates are in big trouble. this is a president who has the begins of a new recession, that with all the economic reports wednesday, thursday, friday are pointing to a in recession. the philadelphia federal reserve is pointing to a new recession. the man
-- >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. >> -- the obama administration still can't get its story straight as the cover-up continues. >> this is turning into something not short of banghazi-gate. >> newt gingrich breaks down the mixed messages coming out of the white house. >> what did president obama do the same day of a terror attack on american citizens? he campaigned in las vegas. >> sean: and a blistering new political ad targets the anointed one's response to the banghazi terror attack. plus, the candidates collide in less than 48 hours. >> this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> sean: the president tries to downplay expectations and predictions from team romney as we preview wednesday's debate in denver. >> i just created a huge screw-up. >> sean: all that, plus my exclusive interview with former california governor and hollywood legend arnold schwarzenegger. we are 36 days from election day and "hannity" starts right here right now. >> sean: this is a fox news alert. congressional hearings on the banghazi attack are about
by the obama administration that are having a chilling effect on energy production in the united states. those three things alone would send signals to the marketplace. we're serious about our energy policy. even though congress doesn't act, the administration, the president could take those steps and it would send a clear signal, put a lot more people to work. >> so what should the policy look like? what, in your view, would be the most important, you know, event that the administration can do to help the country's energy situation? >> i think the first thing is it needs to be a policy driven by job creation. in the oil and the gas business, since this recession started in 2007, 2008, we've created close to 400,000 jobs when the economy has lost 6 million. so we need to focus on job creation potential. the second thing we shouldn't overlook is the amount of revenue that the industry generates as they create these jobs. we contribute over $86 million a day to the federal government. that's a lot of revenue that could help with deficit, deficit reduction and our debt structure. the third piece
. plus, why is the obama administration standing in the way of our brave military men and women from
. >> and, james, have you reported on an internal dispute deep inside the obama administration and the intelligence community over this attack? >> yeah. we have previously reported that senior members of the president's national security team made a secret finding on september the 12th that benghazi was a terrorist attack. and, yet, it was three days later that u.n. ambassador susan rice, you will recall, went on all the sunday shows to insist that the killings were the result of a spontaneous mob. well, the next day fox news has learned high level intelligence officials has reached out to several independent security contractors and had them review these images of the mortar damage at that annex. the contractor sited the angles and fragmentation patterns to detect two more mortar teams using g.p.s. devices to score hits. armed with these outside assessments, the intel officials internally rebutted susan rice's claims and the very next day matt olson, head of the national counter terrorism center ended this internal debate when he testified publicly to the united states senate
not mean what he said about half the energy companies supported by the obama administration going bankrupt. he didn't actually mean that. sort of rolled over from democratic and liberal bewilderment last night that mr. romney was abandoning his main economic plan that he was running on, his $5 trillion tax cut plan, his big trickle-down plan, to be rolled over from democrats being bewildered about that to the beltway press and mainstream pundits i think now having a hard time deciding whether they are supposed to call that a lie or whether they're supposed to just say this is a radically new position for the candidate and welcome to it. joining us now, jonathan alter, columnist for "bloomberg news" and msnbc political analyst. mr. alter, great to have you here. >> hi, rachel. >> how does president obama counter the strategy of mitt romney's to unveil whole new ideas or deny he ever held the ideas that he plainly has held? it's one thing to have a truth squad fact checking on pooinlli. how do you counter that at the podium? >> one is i'm rubber, you're glue, bounces off and sticks to you. t
12 hours. add into the equation, the obama administration's bizarre handling of what they have been telling the american people what's going on there. so, what is going on? something just doesn't seem right. congressman grimm, a former fbi special agent and marine is here. good evening, sir. why couldn't they get into that compound, the fbi? >> li think the fbi could have gotten in. but i think they made the prudent decision, if it was not secure for them, if they felt their agency would be in harm's way, they are not going to sunday them in there, which begs the question, why weren't they secure? the real question isn't why the fbi agents weren't in there. it's safety issues. but why wasn't the military brought in? why weren't the armored cars and the security brought in 3 weeks ago, rather than 3 weeks later? why did it take so long to get the security they need to do their job? >> greta: i have no -- there is no doubt in my mind, it's dangerous there. we have four americans murdered there. no doubt in my mind. what i don't understand is that the show of force that went in yesterd
the obama administration slowed the growth of medicare spending by $700 billion the big attack of republicans for having done not. in the environment where you can't talk about medicare, where no one would talk about -- everyone is just talking about loophole closes, how do you get from here to there? let me ask doug first. you save the environment would be different in 2013. other than this pressure you talk about for the rating agencies, what is going to get these guys singing to my all? >> they are not going to think oh my god. this environment is the worst, but this'll be the right time to fix it. you don't have to worry about economics not happening. it can be the second word and it's very unlikely that she can't avoid getting it to next year, where i think they're going to be outside pressures. capital market, cutting rating agencies and great leadership out of the white house to get this done. and it's going to be difficult underscored to be lots of days where it's going to look like were going to make it and there's no question about that. we are never very pretty when
seconds. >> well, that's not fair. early in the obama administration the senate republican leader said the single most important thing we want to achieve is for president obama to be a one-term president. i was indicating he would get no cooperation or compromise from the opposing party, if the president-elected in november is not of your party and you do win the senate seat, to what extent will you adopt that approach to thwart the president's agenda or make him look bad? >> i'm a reformer. i was governor with the democrats in control of both houses 12 1/2 years out of my 14. i worked with democrats. i think it is important for us to make sure that we do everything we can do to confront the problems and not postpone them as my opponent has been doing the last 14 years. we've got to confront them and solve the problems. i'll work bipartisanly with anyone who wants to work to solve these problems. that's why i'm running. i do not want us to continue on in debate, and tear down and demagogue each other. i want us to solve america's problems and move this country forward. >> representativ
